hey guys, I'm writing a program in C that will fill in an allocated array of doubles... My question is: What is the right way to allocate memory for an array of doubles with malloc()? double *input; input = (double*)malloc(sizeof(double)*num_elements); is what i have so far... doesnt seem to work. Any ideas?

Is the return value from malloc() 0? If so you might have heap corruption somewhere else in your program, or num_elements could be too big.
